A murder of Ravens

time to read 2 min | 221 words

In the last 96 hours, I slept a total of 6 (all of them while I was on a plane and had no electricity, File:A-murder-of-crows-dvd-cover.jpgso I couldn’t work).

All the rest of my time was pretty much focused on doing crazy stuff with RavenDB. I am very happy to say that I (with a lot of help from Rob Ashton), have managed to really push what RavenDB can do. In particular, about 5 minutes ago I finished the last touch required to get RavenDB to run using fully managed storage.

And yes, this means that we will have a Mono build shortly.

The crazy part is that a week ago I would have said that managed storage would be the feature for RavenDB, but it is actually the case that it is on an equal footing with a few others that we recently added. We have been so busy adding those features, and working through the implication of having those features, that we didn’t have time to sit down and document & explain them properly.

No worries, this is coming. In fact, this is what I intend to do for most of tomorrow (at least, as soon as I wake up).

Ayende the excited.
